For most of you, prom night is probably just days away, which means crunch time is in full effect! While you’re still sorting out the last-minute details of hair do’s and accessory decisions, don’t forget to stop for a minute and take it all in. After all, prom only happens once, so here are a few tips to make your prom night as amazing as possible.
1. Eat something
While eating is probably not the first thing on your mind while you’re in the midst of all the prom hoopla, it’s probably the most important thing you’ll do. Don’t let looking good in your dress make you skip a meal before you go, grab a quick snack before you head out for pictures just in case you prom doesn’t include a dinner.
2. Don’t stress
Prom is one of your last hoorahs as a senior, so don’t let stress ruin your night. Even if things don’t go exactly as planned, brush it off and let your last big dance with your friends be one of your best senior memories.
3. Take in the little moments
You know the saying, “it’s the little things that make the biggest difference” and prom night is no different. Don’t forget to step back and appreciate the little things—dancing with your crush, group selfies with your friends, and looking gorgeous in your new gown.
4. Take photos
Pictures are worth a thousand words, so get snapping! Whether it’s taking full advantage of the prom photo-booth or snapping goofy pictures in the limo ride, you’ll be thankful for the 100+ pictures on your camera roll this summer when you’re reminiscing about this night.
5. Have fun!
Last but not least, let your hair down (not literally if you’ve got an updo), and dance the night away.
